“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” —Desmond Tutu
Hope is a state of mind. Many think of it as an emotion but it really is a choice we make. To hope or not to hope, that is the decision we make. When you have hope, you are placing your trust in the potential for something positive to happen. Psychologists say that “hope reduces feelings of helplessness, boosts happiness, reduces stress, and improves the quality of life.” When one loses hope, a darkness ensues which is difficult to pull away from. I utilized my training in psychology by supervising a crisis hotline. The feeling of hopelessness was evident in every call that came in. While we cannot give hope to another, we certainly can show compassion and love and these are the tools that we have readily available to shine a light into the darkness.
Dear Angels, there is a lot of darkness prevailing in our world currently. If we focus on it, it expands. How can we effect change in our world and is it even possible to do so?
Dear Ones, the low vibration energy throughout your world is indeed trying to gain momentum to not allow the light in. Darkness cannot exist if conditions are right to allow light in. So what are those conditions? First is the acknowledgement of the darkness. Many of you refuse to even speak of darkness much less admit that it exists. Both darkness and light exist in the world, which means they both exist in you. Dear Ones, life is not just about the fact that both darkness and light exist but about finding the light within the darkness. You have a spark within you that comes from a place of unconditional love. When you see the darkness as real, you may see those who are not acting with love and sometimes that person is you. Instead of retreating into hopelessness within yourself or in the perceived world around you, you can simply light a candle with that spark that never extinguishes inside of you. This is your life force energy that knows and trusts that light prevails even in the face of overwhelming darkness. Hope, Dear Ones, along with your unconditional love is what disperses the darkness. Don’t fight the darkness as it is not your enemy. Lack of compassion and withholding love is what allows the darkness to prevail. We encourage you to challenge yourself to increase your level of compassion and empathy no matter what darkness is showing up around or in you. The time is now to light the candles throughout your world.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to light a candle today and boldly move forward trusting that the darkness will disperse.
